2023 EPT Prague: Where Poker Meets the Heart of Europe

As the holiday season approaches, the European Poker Tour (EPT) is gearing up to descend upon the enchanting city of Prague. From December 6 to 17, 2023, the Czech capital will play host to one of the most anticipated poker festivals in Europe.

Nestled on the banks of the Vltava River, Prague is a city that effortlessly blends history, architecture, and culture. Its charming Old Town Square, Gothic cathedrals, and iconic Charles Bridge make it a picturesque backdrop for the world of poker. As the winter chill sets in, Prague transforms into a fairytale-like wonderland, complete with Christmas markets and festive lights, creating a magical atmosphere that complements the poker action.

EPT Prague, a legacy since 2007


The EPT Prague festival kicks off with a series of EUREKA tournaments, setting the stage for the main EPT event. EPT Prague has long been a cornerstone of the EPT calendar, boasting consistently high turnouts and unforgettable poker moments. Even with the simultaneous 2023 WPT World Championship and 2023 WSOP Paradise events, there’s no doubt that Prague will once again live up to its reputation for success.

Prague’s status as a traditional EPT stop dates back to 2007, making it one of the longest-standing events on the tour. Over the years, it has garnered a loyal following of players who eagerly anticipate this annual pilgrimage to the heart of Europe.
